ODD EVEN NUMBERS WORKSHEETS
Our crisp and clear charts, worksheets and activities on odd and even numbers make kids understand and differentiate them. There is a thumb rule to find out if the given number is odd or even.
Its the divisibility rule. Numbers which are completely divisible by 2 or which can be grouped equally are called even number and numbers which leave a remainder when divided by 2 or which cannot be split into equal groups are odd numbers.
So between odd numbers is an even number and between even numbers is an odd number. So 1 is considered to be an odd number.2, 4, 6, 8 are even numbers and 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 are odd numbers. When you check large numbers, eg. 7,342,387, the easiest method to know if it as odd or even number is to choose the digit in ones place and check if that number is divisible by 2.
In this number 7,342,387 the last digit or the digit is ones place is 7. Let us check the divisibility. Three time two is 6 and four times two is 8. Hence 7 is not divisible by 2. It lies between two even numbers. Thus the number 7,342,387 is an odd number.
The same rules are followed to check even numbers. Eg. 1,429,876. Choose the last number. Three times two is 6. Thus 1,429,876 is an even number. Learn skip counting and number patterns along with odd/ even numbers. Its interesting and fun filled!
